Snowboarding is a fun sport that offers the opportunity to improve balance, concentration, and overall body strength, so it makes sense that you want to encourage your loved one to continue engaging in the sport. Here are a few birthday gift ideas that the snowboarding enthusiast in your life is sure to appreciate and that will help make the sport more exciting:
Some New Goggles
Every snowboarder needs a reliable set of goggles to wear while going down the slopes, and if your loved one hasn't purchased a new pair in a few years, they're probably in need of some due to scratches and general wear and tear. Consider getting them a pair of goggles that feature dual pane lenses that can be quickly swapped out as the weather changes, a pair with anti-fog coatings that help ensure optimized vision, or a pair that's made with a removable nose mask for ease of customization.
A Snowboard Rack
If the snowboard enthusiast in your life doesn't already have a snowboard rack on the roof of their vehicle, consider surprising them with one for their birthday. With a rack on the roof, your loved one can load their snowboard up and be on the road to the snow in mere minutes. Using a rack will help ensure that both the snowboard and vehicle remain free of scratches and other damage that tends to happen when trying to shove the snowboard into a trunk or back seat. You can couple the rack with a cover that will protect the snowboard from sun damage and extreme weather elements during travel.
A Weekend Getaway
Why not plan a fun snowboarding weekend getaway for your loved one and their friends to enjoy with one another. Book a couple of rooms at a hotel on a mountain where your loved one has never been, score a few ski lift tickets and restaurant vouchers in the area and present the gift by creating a homemade gift certificate for them. You can find various gift certificate templates online to download and print out for free.
Some Long Underwear
When it is extraordinarily cold outside, a snow jacket and pants won't keep the snowboarding enthusiast in your life warm enough on the slopes, and they'll likely end up calling it quits early due to discomfort. You can help keep them on the slopes even during the coldest of days by giving them some long underwear to bundle up with. Choose sweat wicking underwear that will cover your loved one from neck to feet, so they stay comfortable if they end up sweating a little while skiing on their snowboard.
A Pair of Sunglasses
While your loved one will likely wear their goggles when skiing the slopes on their snowboard, they will need something to wear when they're on the ski lift or between skiing rounds on the ground to shield their eyes from the glaring sun. So, get them a new pair of sunglasses that covers the fronts and sides of the eyes, and that matches the rest of their snowboarding gear, so they stay safe and stylish when hanging out near the slopes. Don't forget to get them a sunglasses rope that they can connect the glasses to and hang around the neck when not in use.
Their hands have to stay warm during snowboarding to ensure optimal control, which is why every snowboarder needs a pair of multipurpose snow gloves to utilize. The gloves should be thin so that the hands can function normally, but they should also be insulated enough to keep the hands completely warm even when covered in snow. They should also be simple to put on and take off while on the ski lift or top of a slope.
